“Fun Market that sells wine, sandwiches etc.”
Reviewed May 3, 2013

Much better than your average Circle K. Home baked goodies, coffee drinks, wine or beer service. You can buy bottles of wine, large selection of snacks AND get your car washed at the same time.

“Unique offerings at this amazing gas station”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Stopped at this "gas station" for an incredibly good lunch on a visit to Scottsdale. Pulled pork sandwich was piled high with tender chunks of flavorful meat. Wide variety of sauces available to please any BBQ fan. Most unique offering of services under one roof I've ever seen:fill up your tank, get a car wash, shop for gourmet foods, or just have some great BBQ! Fresh flowers in the bathroom, too.

“Wrap your head around it, a car wash can do lunch!”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

We continued to see the great reviews on this place and even briefly stopped by one day to check out the car wash and market. However, dining here meant we had some mental roadblocks to overcome. Fast forward a bit, and we enjoyed a wonderful hike nearby on a sunny day; afterwards we were hungry. Tom Thumb was tossed about as a lunch destination with a "why not?" conclusion. We placed our orders from a broad menu, received numbers, then grabbed a table on the patio. (Indoor seating is available.) Lots of oohs over the salad, soup, and sandwich selections. So, give it a go. You will become a fan!

“A terrific surprise”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

When we first heard about Tom's Thumb, we were a little hesitant (a car wash with great food?!) but, based on the recommendation from a friend, we visited and have gone back a number of times in the last few months. We've not been disappointed....from the hearty breakfast dishes to the great BBQ (you have to try to tacos!). Plus,a very nice outdoor patio that is dog-friendly and a great selection of gourmet items to-go (including an impressive selection of wine) in case you want to picnic or just take it on the road.

And, while you're there, you can get the car washed! An impressive concept combined with good food and friendly service. We'll be visiting often!

“Amazing BBQ...and, more!”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

What a great find...great BBQ, and more. The pulled pork tacos were fresh and delicious. Fresh pulled pork, shredded cabbage served on soft tacos, were a great choice. Served with black beans. The chicken enchiladas were both different and delicious.
If you like it nice and spicy, try the habanero BBQ sauce...Yum! They were sold out of the Brisket on our last visit, which was disappointing, but, the pulled pork was perfect. We had the peach cobbler for desert, which was served hot and topped with whipped cream. Ice Cream would have been better, but, not an option...Boo. We ate in the dining room area with a friendly and helpful wait-staff. They also have a large take-out menu, including Tammy Coe deserts to take with you. I would not buy their pricey gas, but, that is not what we went there for...we dined here on a Saturday night, and although their web-site says they serve until 10 pm, they turned away people at 9pm...make up your mind! This place is casual, quirky and delicious...well worth the price.
